The History of Giving with Toys for Tots
Toys for Tots was first founded in the 1940s by the United States Marine Corps Reserve Major Bill Hendricks and his wife Diane when they wanted to donate a doll but didn’t know of an organization that would take it. Hendricks inspired some of his fellow marines to get together and placed collection bins outside of movie theaters, which resulted in a total of 5,000 donated toys. Since then, Toys for Tots was founded, and as of 2016, they’ve collected more than 512 million toy donations that have helped bring joy to the holidays for children all across the country.
